In what has been a turbulent year for Premier League fans, with several of the ‘sure-fire’ teams losing to newcomers like Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester and Chelsea-legend Mourinho getting the boot, it seems that several Bettors and Spread Betting customers are enjoying this more unpredictable start to the season. Comical odds of what a lucky punter would have achieved had they placed a bet on Leicester to win at the start of the season or Jamie Vardy to get the Golden Boot have been doing the rounds on Social media, but several Betting enthusiasts have actually realised these potentials.
1) Just before Christmas, one lucky punter made 1000/1 return on a bet that Leicester would top the Premier League table by Christmas and he may have another bonus coming to him at a whopping 6600/1 should they go on to actually win the League.
2) A seven-way losing accumulator bet of just 20p actually turned out to be a winner thanks to an early cash-out when an anonymous punter correctly predicted six bets including Norwich beating Manchester United and Leicester to beat Everton with both teams scoring.
3) Rumours have also emerged of a rather sizeable six-figure win from the 28th December game between Stoke and Everton that saw a seven-goal thriller end with Stoke winning thanks to a late goal.
However, it is not the games themselves that seem to be picking up a flurry of attention now, but rather who will be there to watch them. With five Premier League managers already casualties of this years’ season including Brendan Rodgers, Dick Advocaat, Tim Sherwood, Garry Monk and of course, Jose Mourinho, there have been a surge in bets on who will be the next to go and more importantly, who will be the next arrivals. With Pep Guardiola, Rafael Benitez and several other huge names now available and willing/wanting to manage in the Premier League, this season may be one of the most volatile yet, especially considering two of the other big four teams, Manchester City and Manchester United, are rumoured to be willing to chop and change their managers in the near future too.
So for those of you who have been inspired to take a look at your options by this article, or for any seasoned veterans looking to dabble deeper into the betting and spread betting markets, we wish you the best of luck and let us know how it goes.
